Alexander Calder's work 'Sur Les Pointes'

SALON 003: Calder on Paper 1960 - 1976

  • 27 September — 8 December 2017 *on now

A collection of earlier works on paper by Calder dating from 1939 - 1959, will be simultaneously displayed at Omer Tiroche Gallery in Mayfair, London. Exhibiting his work from two separate time periods in his career, in two separate locations, serves to create a comprehensive retrospective. It also ensures that a greater number of works - both familiar and unfamiliar - can elucidate Calder's contribution to the development of modern art.

Iconoclasts: Art Out of the Mainstream

  • 27 September 2017 — 7 January 2018 *on now

'Iconoclasts: Art Out of the Mainstream' is a major new exhibition featuring the work of thirteen ground-breaking artists.

By using a myriad of unusual image-making practices - from branding imagery onto human skin to sculpting curving structures out of crow feathers - these artists are breaking the mould, ushering in a new age of artistic defiance through their resistance of typical artistic processes and their personal interpretations of cultural mores.

While this group cannot be described as iconoclasts in the traditional sense of the word, they are all driven by an iconoclastic urge, which manifests itself in the intriguingly diverse and often destructive ways they produce art. A startling number of materials and techniques cohabit in one exhibition, where abstraction, figuration, creation and deconstruction combine.

At a time when the very notion of iconoclasm has seemingly become mainstream, Iconoclasts brings together the work of thirteen distinct contemporary figures, seeking to examine what it means to be an iconoclast today.

Iconoclasts features the work of Maurizio Anzeri, Matthew Chambers, Daniel Crews-Chubb, Josh Faught, Aaron Fowler, Danny Fox, Makiko Kudo, Dale Lewis, Thomas Mailaender, Kate MccGwire, Renee So, Douglas White and Alexi Williams-Wynn.

Chop Suey by Senior X

Prints and Originals Gallery | Altered States

  • 29 September — 30 October 2017 *on now

The eight artists featured in Altered States are: D.A.N.T.E., David Shillinglaw, Florence Blanchard, Kid Acne, Lily Mixe, Skeleton Cardboard, Sr.X and Victoria Villasana.
By its nature art concerns transition and transformation. Ideas and emotions transform from impulses to physical images. Substances are transformed when rendered on surfaces, liquids become solids and colours merge. Similarly, artists find themselves living within a society that is constantly changing and presenting them with new challenges and opportunities.

‘New Paintings’ will exhibit during Frieze from October 3rd - 16th.

#philipcolbert #saatchigallery #gazelliarthouse #popart #newpaintings #frieze

Philip Colbert expands his pop universe with his inaugural solo show of large scale paintings presented by Gazelli Art House at the Saatchi Gallery during Frieze London, starting 3 October, 2017.

Colbert's boisterous multi-disciplinary art projects have been acclaimed by fashion icons such as Karl Lagerfeld and Lady Gaga and featured in pop up exhibitions worldwide at Art Basel, Frieze London, and Tate Modern.

Previously described by American Vogue’s Andre Leon Talley as “the godson of Andy Warhol”, Colbert presents eight, large-scale oil on canvas paintings bursting with contemporary culture and art history references. Conceived as a dialogue between the artist and his pop forefathers, the paintings trace Colbert's autobiographical journey within his unique creative landscape.
